Fiumefreddo Beach, Sicily

In Sicily there are two kinds of beaches: rocky and sandy.  Generally we stick to the sandy beaches because they sound like more fun (right?), but we learned a few weeks ago that rocky beaches have some serious advantages too.  Especially when there is an ice-cold mountain stream bubbling out of the pebbles on one of them!  We joined our friends the Arthurs at Fiumefreddo for our last beach day together in Sicily.

So windy it destroyed the beach umbrella… typical Sicily.

The men and kids decided to “expand” the cold mountain stream by making new channels for it in the pebbles.

Buried alive!

My little man actually seems to be enjoying the beach again… and you know Lena loved every minute of it!

That green promontory in the background is beautiful Taormina.  For looks, Fiumefreddo takes the cake, although Cassibile is still our favorite.  More photos from Cassibile later this summer, I hope!

    Beautiful! What fun! And it’s aptly named. Fiume = river, freddo=cold.

      Yes indeed, Anne! In the winter and spring (when there is snowmelt), the spring apparently shoots several feet into the air in a continuous spray!

    This looks so fun! I love the pics of Lena buried in the rocks. She looks like she is enjoying it so much. I was thinking yesterday about how much I miss her — that little POOKIE POO!

    She misses YOU! Can’t wait to see you in a few weeks!

    So awesome. Any chance you find sea glass on those rocky beaches?
    I love your swimsuit. Where is it from?
